2009 TELUS World Skins Game tickets sell out in under an hour


Star-studded charity event broadcast schedule released

Québec City, Québec – The 2009 TELUS World Skins Game tickets officially “sold out” in less than an hour after they went on sale to the public on Monday, April 13th.

“The 2009 TELUS World Skins Game will visit the Québec City region for the first time this June and the overwhelming response to ticket sales indicates just how eager the province’s fans, and golf enthusiasts from across the country, are to watch some of the world’s most talented golfers in action,” said Karen Radford, president of TELUS Québec.

Joe Natale, president of TELUS Business Solutions said, “With just two months to go, the excitement around TELUS World Skins is clearly building. The combination of a talented field, a fantastic course and a welcoming community will make this year’s Skins an event to remember in support of a worthy charitable partner, Opération Enfant Soleil.”

Selling out in under an hour makes the 2009 World Skins the second fastest sell out in the event’s 17-year history. Predator Ridge Golf Resort in Vernon, British Columbia, still holds the record as tickets sold out in just 20 minutes in 2000.

Canada’s Mike Weir, Fred Couples of the United States, Australian Geoff Ogilvy, South African and 2008 Masters Champion, Trevor Immelman, and England’s Ian Poulter will battle it out in the popular Canadian summer golf event taking place on June 22 and 23.

Fans not able to attend the event at La Tempête can watch all of the action on TSN (HD) and RDS (HD) on the following dates and times:

June 22: 8-10:30 p.m. ET / June 24 (second round delayed a day due to NBA Finals): 8-10:30 p.m. ET
June 22: 8-10 p.m. ET / June 23: 8-10 p.m. ET

Owned and operated by IMG in Canada for 17 years, the TELUS World Skins Game has included many of the biggest names in the game including Jack Nicklaus, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples and Greg Norman.

The TELUS World Skins Game is also sponsored by Audi, Desjardins, Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, GREY GOOSE Vodka, Québec City Tourism, Québec Tourism and Samsung Electronics Canada.
